new imprint finally named

Wizards of the Coast: Discoveries has finally, officially been named. I can finally stop calling it “A new adult, literary speculative fiction imprint from Wizards of the Coast distributed by Random House” which is – to be perfectly honest – quite a mouthful when i’m drunk. and i’m usually drunk when i’m bringing my book up in public.

“WIZARDS OF THE COAST LAUNCHES NEW IMPRINT: Science fiction publisher, and Hasbro subsidiary, Wizards of the Coast is launching a new imprint in 2008 dedicated to adult fantasy. Wizards of the Coast Discoveries will feature titles in a range of sub-genres including urban horror and literary fantasy; it will also publish both debut and established authors. The imprint, which will release its first book in January, Richard Dansky’s Firefly Rain, marks Wizards’ first foray into “adult non-shared world fiction,” according to publicist Caitlin Roulston. Up until now Wizards, which has YA imprint Mirrorstone, has published only adult fantasy series fiction.”

Want to find out more about Richard Dansky, the first author of the imprint? Sure you do.

And me? I’m one of the literary fantasy debut authors.

Good news comes in threes for the superstitious types. Number One Good News was two days ago. Two days from now, I’m sure something wonderful will happen.

take a picture

if i were more organized, i’d find a bunch of kids from all over the city and give them cameras – a whole bunch of them – and ask them to take pictures of things that make them feel different emotions. take a picture of what scares you. take a picture of what makes you happy. take a picture of what makes you sad. take a picture of what makes you laugh. take a picture of what makes you hopeful. etc. etc.

let them take pictures of their world, in their way.

show us your world through your own eyes, little ones.
